Colour in Uniform – What Should You Be Wearing?

When you have a working uniform, there should be a high level of detail given to all elements of its design, and the colour of the uniform is no different. Choosing the right colours for your uniform can sometimes be difficult, so we’re looking at the best kinds of colours for your uniforms.

So what colours should my uniforms be?

The colours which should appear on your uniform will vary from profession to profession. Every colour has its place within a particular type of establishment. For example, if you’re a restaurant with waiting staff, then you’ll want them to be wearing clothing which is not loud or brash, but still, maintains a sense of sophistication and looks neat, so blacks and whites are usually employed. There are of course exceptions to this, as some places would prefer brighter colours like oranges and blues to show that there’s a sense of vibrancy and excitement, which can work favourably for establishments which want their customers to feel excited about their food, perhaps because it is exotic and different.

Contrastingly, people who work in public services may take a different approach. People who work in offices or other environments which naturally evoke a sense of professionalism may wish to dress in more muted shades, for example, blacks, navy or grey to show that there’s a sense of maturity and sophistication. This is particularly useful for people who work in the public sector and interact with customers on a regular basis, as you’ll want to look professional to maintain the image of the company.

The colours of your uniform may also tie into the colours of your logo. This helps to create a sense of unity and consistency, which may help to put people at ease and make you more identifiable as a company. Alternatively, it can often be the case that businesses choose to deliberately keep the work uniform somewhat muted in order to then emphasise a very bright and colourful logo, to draw attention to it. In this case, a black uniform with a brightly coloured logo on it will provide a contrast, and mean that people will automatically hone in on that colour when they look at the uniforms, for example we've carried out many embroidery designs and one that worked very well was that of a housekeeping uniform.

Really consider what your uniforms are that you want to have and the image you want your business to have. Some industries suits dresses and the likes and for such buy prom dresses here.

Overall, the colours which you select for the uniforms of your workers will vary depending upon the type of message you wish to convey to the public. Brighter colours convey a sense of vibrancy and passion, which can be helpful for a company which relies on advertising in order to improve business. Alternatively, a professional company which caters to a much more serious and mature service, like insurance, for example, may find it better to wear muted clothing which reflects the professionalism and seriousness of the topic at hand. In any instance, the uniforms that you find yourself providing for your workers, regardless of colour, will depend solely upon the profession you’re in, and how best you want to showcase yourself and your organisation.
